Séjourné: Concerto for Four Marimbas and Strings, “Gotan”
Beethoven: Symphony No. 4 in B♭ Major

  • Séjourné (b. 1961) is a French composer/percussionist and teaches at Conservatoire de Strasbourg
  • Robert Schumann called the fourth “a slender Greek maiden between two Norse giants” (the more ponderous 3rd and 5th symphonies)

“The four percussionists playing mostly marimbas will produce a very earthy/woody feel while the support from strings provides a smooth and lushy complement to the rhythmic feature. It will be a fresh and new experience for people.”

– Homero Cerón, Principal Percussion
